“Very pleased!”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The employees were very helpful. Breakfast was good. The hotel was just a few miles outside of downtown Charleston. Overall it was an AMAZING deal for the money.

This hotel seems to be very new. The king room was exceptionally spacious, and tastefully decorated. Room facilities were comprehensive, and bed was very comfortable.
Complimentary breakfast was very good, especially the pancake maker (that other reviewers have commented on).
There is a Ruby Tuesday's restaurant conveniently next door - also recommended.
The only negative aspect was that the hotel is located a few miles out of Charleston on the Savannah Hwy, and it took us some time to get there through heavy peak hour traffic after our tourist day in Charleston - otherwise, highly recommended).

My husband and I stayed at this hotel the night before our cruise was to leave on Monday. We came into Charleston around 10am Sunday morning and were allowed to leave our bags at the hotel until time to check in later in the day. We wanted to tour downtown Charleston and didn't want to have to leave our luggage in the car all day. The front desk staff was wonderful. They were very helpful and courteous. Our room was very clean and comfortable. There was a microwave and refrigerator in our room which was a nice extra. The complimentary breakfast bar was wonderful. There was a nice variety of breakfast items hot and cold. The staff servicing the breakfast bar did a great job keeping everything stocked and clean. The hotel was only 6.5miles from the Port of Charles where our cruise departed. Great overnight stay at an excellent price.

This conveniently located hotel has an excellent staff (management, front desk, housekeeping, and maintenance). The daily breakfast is very good, all rooms have a microwave oven and refrigerator, and the premises are well-maintained and secure. My elderly father and I felt quite at home during our recent vacation in Charleston. That being said, the ONLY reason I cannot rate them five stars (dots?) is because of the WiFi provided through eHost. We had a very difficult time accessing Yahoo, especially Yahoo Mail. When calling tech support at eHost, the experience was pleasant but the technician blamed Yahoo. Emailing Yahoo resulted in them blaming eHost. I found it curious that we experienced no problems whatsoever when using the WiFi at Barnes & Noble and/or McDonald's.

I had a nice stay at this hotel. The front desk staff was friendly and very accommodating. I had forgotten some of my toiletries at home, and they had some complimentary ones to give me. I also had a change in my schedule and had to move my stay to 1 day earlier, and they were very helpful and changed my date without any hassle or charge! The breakfast in the morning was pretty standard, but they had this awesome pancake maker that I had never seen before. The room was spacious, quiet, and most importantly in my opinion, clean. I would recommend staying here for an affordable, pleasant stay!
